What our clients are saying...
“I spent years doing research and speaking to advisors, investors, and banks. I could find no support for the kind of management buyout transaction I wanted to do and believed could be done. That is, until I stumbled upon Lantern Capital Advisors. Just one phone call to Lantern and I heard the words, "it absolutely can be done!" Lantern then helped me make it happen. I will be forever grateful to Lantern Capital Advisors for their counsel, expertise, and hard work in leading us to our goal.”
— DF, CFO, Full Service Call Center
“I spoke with multiple financial firms about the possibility of conducting a management buyout of a particular division. Most of them seemed more interested in developing a long term relationship with the parent company than they were in securing the best possible deal for me. I was then referred to Lantern Capital Advisors and things just clicked. They listened carefully to my vision for the business and patiently explained every step of the management buyout process. They met every expedited timeline and used their extensive network to find me the best possible investment group. I don't know that a deal would have been completed without their guidance. I would recommend Lantern Capital Advisors to anyone contemplating a similar transaction.”
— JR, CEO, Consumer Products Company
